There's our favorite gaming composer again - Sounds more than fine, Richard - surprising you did it so long ago! I agree that it doesn't quite seem like "battle music," but it's atmospheric, more than hints at drama and danger, maybe a prelude to a battle.
I'll be honest... but between us only (Me, Randy, and Jay )... I didn't really know what I was doing then. Just throwing in stuff to fit my ear lol! That is how I did most of my early compositions. Now I have a much better understanding of how putting pieces together work so I can better adjust to themes now.
An early composition, and a very nice one. I don't have an opinion on its use or purpose, but what I know is, that the strings sound very well and merge together nicely with the voices. It has some drama in it, accentuated by the percussion.
